Beautiful as always…
Come Along to the Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival’s film night in the Algiers Inn on Thurs 10th April at 8:30pm. The film, Nanook of the North, is a 1922 silent documentary film by Robert J. Flaherty, which captures the struggles of an Inuk man named Nanook and his family in the Canadian Arctic. The film is considered the first feature-length documentary ever made.
Also showing: The Baltimore Premiere of the RNLI short film of the wreck of the SS Alondra from the series Hope in the Great War
Hope everyone has their wooden boats well secured during this stormy weather. All sailors like some wind but this is ridiculous – hope the end of May brings better conditions and a little sunshine for our Festival.
The Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival website gets a new look for 2014. We will be adding posts more regularly and updating the image gallery. Live feeds planned! We may be celebrating the ancient craft of timber boat building but we can embrace new technology too!
